I bless the rains down in Africa...

5:00 AM

It's day three of the Countries and Cultures challenge with The Digital Dozen.  Today I have an African inspired mani for you. I'd like to call this a country manicure but as Africa is not a country it's probably more of a culture design!  It's also upside down so apologies for that (you can see a right side up pic below!).  I really love African art and culture.  The colors and the vibrancy of it is just amazing.  I wanted something really bright for this and then I used some African tribal type patterns for the art.

There is a sun on my ring finger over the elephant because I thought combined with the fade it would sort of resemble a sunset.  I've also got a little giraffe and a tree!!

I hope you enjoy these African nails!!
